There are many gems and one of the most gorgeous diamonds. It is better to start from the 3rd floor (pictures), then go to 2nd (Medieval weapons, jewels adorn weapons), and finnaly the 1st floor. Take time to inspect each item, the longer you watch, the more of new parts you can find.

We happened to be in Dresden on a Monday and the Zwinger was closed. We were rather disappointed but it is still worth walking around the grounds as there are more fountains and statues of ladies and cherubs than is quite believable. A very grand buildingand made more enjoyable by one of the musicians who play in every corner of... More

Although the Zwinger was partly undergoing renovation and improvements when we visited, the palace is one of the must-dos when you are in Dresden. The gardens are beautiful and the palace facade has been wonderfully restored.

Great place to walk around. Very big area. There was a kind of porselain gallery inside. But it is the outside that is breathtaking.

The Zwinger is a collection of buildings representing one of the best examples of Baroque architecture in Germany. The central courtyards are a fantastic place for a walk at any time of day, allowing a visitor to enjoy the design of the buildings or the grounds. Located within the buildings are three different museums, all of which are worth a... More
